Update to Upgrade

well folks,

I know its been a while and I do apologise for not getting back sooner but the good news is the 997 turbo brakes and discs went in without a hitch! No modifications necessary...just "plug and play". and boy do they look good...
So now we know...996/997 brakes are compatible. I guess now there's a set of used 996TT brakes w/ pagid yellows and discs for sale.

Thanks a lot for all the suggestions and feedback from everyone.

Thanks for this valuable information about "plug and play" and at the same time damn it! Because I was in the same situation this spring and heard they aren't a nice fit...and just got 996 GT2 front brakes without even trying the whole 997TT system.

Sorry not from the two TTs. Never weighed them. I am certain there are a few more lbs on the 997TT over the 996TT.

This is what I was running for a while, a stock GT3 6 Pot Caliper and a 997TT disc, fit perfect.
